With this book of six puzzles, learn to read while having fun." This "livre-puzzle" offers three Aesopic fables related through pages six of which are picture puzzles. Under the "puzzle" section of this catalogue, I offer pictures of the cover, featuring GA, and of one scene from "The Two Asses." Other fables here are "The Weasel and the Chickens" and "The Dog and His Master." It is curious that the fables pictured on the two covers, GA and TMCM, do not appear in the book. The book itself is sturdy and well made. It is of course rare to see the French featuring Aesop for fables. I list this book among both books and puzzles.
